  1. The 2022 double sovereigns might be ok but the standard years are not. They typically cost about £50 over spot but people only want to pay £10-20 over spot at best when you want to sell. You'll only be able to sell one at a time unless you are happy to off load them at spot. I tried selling my 2021 a few months back and just got a PM offer for spot + £10 so I kept it.
  2. I'd never stick silver in a safety deposit box however much I had. Gold and platinum, yes, but silver under the floorboards.
  3. If it's a restrike, it is still less than 2.5% over spot which seems like a good price. I guess if an original is worth 4 times as much, it should be priced at 7200 euros.
  4. It has the exact same image as the 1/20 on BPP and they wouldn't make that sort of mistake.
  5. Yeah, must have been. Any chance he can get his money back? I think this was for 13 1/25 ozt coins. Great descriptions.
  6. 2022 sovereigns. Usually when you buy a coin you expect to lose a couple of % when you need to sell it. After new year, these will probably go up at least £10 each on top of the starting premium which is rare.
  7. Ukraine Very pricey though https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114982794881?chn=ps&mkevt=1&mkcid=28 https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces88403.html
  8. Plan A at the moment is to save enough half sovs to sell one a week when I retire until I snuff it as long as interest rates stay low. Plan B is selling my stack to pay off my mortgage if interest rates get to 5% or more (or whatever rate gobbles up all my disposable income). To fund Plan A for 20 years retirement I would need 1040 half sovs which would probably be too much for me (I think 600/700 is more like it) but I'm a couch potato so I won't live that long lol. Of course I don't know anything about investments yet. I don't even know how to buy a share but I plan on learning what is better than gold so I expect A and B will both be out the window in 10 years.

  10. The state of affairs can be very different from country to country. A 20 pesos for example generally has about a 20-25% premium here but less than 7% in the US. It may just be how it is that people only care about the weight of the coin there. In that situation you should still go for smallest coins going as you can sell smaller bits as you please in the future. Also go for highest purity so you get more gold for your money in case you get the chance to sell abroad. But if you sell in Columbia it might not make any difference if weight is all that counts there.
  11. My guess is within 24 hours.
  12. I don't agree with chopping up the sales sections at all. Most items would never get looked at by casual/new buyers. But having a keyword feature would work well. The problem with the search feature is that people use different words to describe things quarter vs 1/4, etc or don't put the word silver or gold in their thread. Give thread starters boxes they can tick so people can filter their search with one click. Also if you ignore people's posts, their sales threads should be hidden as well.
